Every cat can live his life on the street, with
a full belly, a warm shelter, and a safe environment.
Astoria has a very large community cat population, this we know! An average cat has 1-8 kittens per litter and 2-3 litters per year. During her reproductive life a female cat can have more than 100 kittens. Up to 4,948 kittens can be born from one unspayed female cat and her offspring in seven years.
Adding to these statistics is the number of cats that are abandoned. After living a life indoors, cats do not adjust well to life on the streets when abandoned. Countless numbers of these poor cats become feral after being dumped, they get hit by cars, die of infections or not being really prepared to fend for themselves, die of starvation and hardships.
What we do?
Astoria Cat Rescue is dedicated to bettering the lives of the cats that live on our streets. This starts with full bellies. ACR feeds over 150 cats EVERY NIGHT in over 14 colonies. Our vision is to strive for spay/neuter of all the cats in our colonies, as well as weeding out the sick, the kittens and the abandoned for medical help and resocialization. Regardless of how an animal comes to us, we provide food, shelter, medical care, and most importantly, love, until the kitty is adopted into its purrfect new home.
Feeding our community cats is the heart and soul of what we do. We are always in need of volunteers to help with feeding because we do it every night.
